‘Mama Bakassi’ as she is fondly called, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, is known as a woman favoured with the gift of turning everything she touches to gold.

The former Special Adviser to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo clocked 73 a few days ago and as expected, she hosted an elaborate celebration to mark the day.

The socialite’s 73rd birthday party took an unusual pattern, as she puts one of her foremost skills into test.

To mark her birthday, the ex-lawmaker tuned passion into business as she opened the Echoes of Calabar, a restaurant located at the highbrow Akin Olugbade street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The party had in attendance her celebrity friends, top business personalities and diplomats.
